Impossible Cheeseburger Pie Disaster

I tried a new recipe tonight...Impossible Cheeseburger Pie from Bisquick. It should have been a simple, easy dinner. I guess I should have heeded the word "impossible" in the title. It was a complete disaster! I am not sure what I did wrong, but it was a soupy, disgusting mess. It was so bad, I couldn't make my family eat it. I ended up tossing it down the garbage disposal. How sad...and such a waste of money. But look at this picture, would you eat this slop???

We ended up eating this instead. It was very dissatisfying. Ho Hum, I guess you can't win them all.

A few weeks before Easter, we made Grassapillars. I got the idea from Family Fun magazine, and added my own touches. They were super easy and lots of fun to make.
Here is my version of the instructions:

1.  Cut an egg carton into quarters (3 sections each), and trim the edges so they all appear even.
2.  Draw smiley faces and eyes on each carton quarter.
3.  Mix 1 cup - 1 1/2 cups potting soil with 4 tablespoons winter wheat berries. (You can also use grass seed, but it only comes in HUGE bags, and we only needed a little bit, so I bought winter wheat berries from the bulk foods area in my local grocery store.)
4.  Moisten the mix and scoop into the egg carton sections.
5.  Pat down the soil mixture firmly into each cup.
6.  Add pipe cleaners for the antennae.
7.  Set in a sunny window. The grass will begin to sprout in about a week.
8.  Don't forget to water your new friends.

Here is the picture of the family of grassapillars we created. It was great fun watching them grow, and a great lesson in growing things for my little one :)

I am Crafty Girl, a SAHM with 2 beautiful young children and a wonderful, loving husband.  I love doing all kinds of projects from cooking to scrapbooking and kids crafts to refinishing furniture.  This is my little attempt to track my projects so I can look back and see the things I have accomplished.  Sometimes I will post tutorials for what I have done, sometimes it will just be a before and after.  Still others, it will be just the end result (when I have forgotten to take pictures as I am working).  I hope you will enjoy this journey with me.
